However, later in the episode, Brianna (Sophie Skelton) was certain he had been hanged and mistaken for a traitor.
But fans think he is alive and Buck has actually been hanged after taking Roger’s coat.
One theorised: “Not a book reader, but I can’t imagine Roger is actually dead.
“It was probably his Mackenzie ancestor bro who took his jacket. Otherwise they would have shown his face then and there.”
